Paula Faris announced via social media on Wednesday that she would be leaving The View. She’s only been with the talk show for three seasons.


In her Twitter post, the co-host also revealed that she was leaving Good Morning America's weekend edition. She won’t be leaving our television screens though as she has other jobs already lined up.

Paula Faris won’t be co-hosting the ABC daytime program, The View. After four years, she will also exit her job as a co-anchor of Good Morning America's (GMA) weekend edition.

Faris, who is married and a mother of three, will continue to report stories for ABC News. The devout Christian joined them in 2012.


For more on this story go to our Twitter account @amomama_usa. She shared that she was working on launching her own faith-themed podcast.

She told People, “ABC has really rallied behind a passion project of mine, which is to launch a faith podcast. I’m a woman of deep faith and Christian, so I’m really excited to launch this podcast in September.’

The podcast will be focused on talking to people of all faiths and how their faith has shaped the direction of their life. Faris revealed she knew needed to make a change in her life when she had a tough miscarriage.

‘Excited/grateful for the opportunity to cover big stories & talk to the people at the center of them. Thank you to the gracious teams at @GMA Sat./Sun. and @TheView Not going far but I'll miss you. However, I won't miss that 3am wake up on weekends! ;)’

That’s when her priorities on family came into focus. She explained that she realized her children needed her in ‘the stands and on the sidelines,’ while her husband needed time to reconnect with her.

The TV personality will also continue to be a part of the GMA family. ABC News President James Goldston wrote in a memo to his staff that Faris would take on a new role with them in the fall.

He said she was ‘expanding her reporting portfolio to cover the most consequential stories of the day, help lead the charge on breaking news and focus on key bookings’


Faris went to ABC News after spending more than 10 years working for TV affiliates in Chicago, Cincinnati, and Dayton. She began her career behind the scenes, shooting, editing, and producing.

ABC News has not yet announced Faris’ replacement on either program.
